Iggy Azalea hasn't been accused of being "Becky with the good hair,"
but she made it very clear that she doesn't want to be called Becky at all.
The "Team" singer caused controversy this week when she seemingly called out Beyoncé's instantly-infamous Lemonade
lyric as racially insensitive, responding
to one Twitter user, "Don't ever call me a Becky."
"Generalizing ANY race by calling them one stereotypical name for said race. I personally don't think is very cool, the end," Iggy wrote. "Don't call all Asian women 'Ming Lee,' don't call white women 'Becky,' don't call black women "Sha Nay Nay.'"
Queen B dropped her new visual album
on Saturday and on the track, "Sorry," puts a cheating husband on blast, concluding with a mic drop as she sings, "He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair."
"It's ironic, because both are generalized names. it's clearly not okay for me to call any other race a generalized name…So why is it okay for others to do the same to me? It has to apply to all. If anyone misses the point -- their loss," Iggy later tweeted.
"But at the same time, you know its intention is 'white' that's why you called me that," she ranted.
The 25-year-old rapper then got slightly NSFW, explaining that, "The whole Becky thing 'give me that Becky' comes from white women's supposed love for blow jobs. So excuse me but, I don't want to be called a generalized name that gained popularity as a way to describe oral sex and then generally white women. No thanks."
"Yeah, I'm a super big time racist for not wanting to be called 'Becky' lol," she concluded.
Meanwhile, Piers Morgan wrote a column for the Daily Mail
calling Beyoncé a "born-again-black woman with a political mission" and accusing the GRAMMY winner of exploiting the mothers of Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin, both of whom are featured in the concept video.
"I have to be honest, I preferred the old Beyoncé. The less inflammatory, agitating one," Morgan wrote. "The one who didn’t use grieving mothers to shift records and further fill her already massively enriched purse. The one who didn’t play the race card so deliberately and to my mind, unnecessarily. The one who wanted to be judged on her stupendous talent not her skin color."
Rapper Azalea Banks, who is no stranger to beefing with...anyone and everyone, tweeted out a link to Morgan's piece, saying she agreed with him and calling Lemonade "the antithesis of what feminism is."
The search for "Becky with the good hair" has seen accusations thrown at designer Rachel Roy
and singer Rita Ora
. Both have adamantly denied they're Becky in question -- find out what Roy had to say in the video below.
